GEICO Caveman Commercials
I’m not fortunate enough to own a TiVO so I can fast forward past the commercials. Needless to say, I’m forced to watch a lot of crap. Hopefully my days of watching commercials will soon come to an end because I’ve been enlightened by Fred’s MythTV article.
Back to the topic- a lot of commercials suck and they suck badly. However, the one set of commercials I can’t seem to get enough of are the GEICO caveman commercials. You know, the commercials where GEICO ends the tv spot with their slogan, “It’s so easy, a caveman could do it.” The premise of the commercial is that getting a quote from GEICO.com is so easy that even a caveman can do it and all the while insulting several cavemen who not only still exist in modern society, but also live as intelligent beings.
Here’s a look at some of the funnier GEICO commercials I’ve seen.
Geico Commercial #1 & #2
The first in the caveman commercial series is this one where a GEICO.com commercial is being filmed and as the slogan is introduced, the boom operator turns out to be a caveman who stops the filming and yells “not cool!”
Two cavemen watch the same ad from their apartment and take offense to the commercial.
Geico Commercial #3
A GEICO spokesman meets with two cavemen at a restaurant to apologize for the promotion, explaining that he had no idea “you guys were still around” to be met with the response, “yeah, next time, maybe do a little more research.”
Geico Commercial #4
A caveman on a moving sidewalk at an airport sees a GEICO billboard featuring a caveman in all its stereotypical glory. The song featured in the commercial is Remind Meby Royksopp from the album, Melody A.M.
Geico Commercial #5
A caveman is having a session with a therapist.
Geico Commercial #6

Geico Commercial #11
Two cavemen ride up to an outdoor bar on their motorcycles but see a GEICO billboard with a caveman on a motorcycle advertising GEICO’s motorcycle insurance. The song in the background is Hurt Youby The Sounds: Dying to Say This to You
Geico Commercial #12
A caveman is at a basketball game where he is shown as the Ultimate Fan on a GEICO jumbotron.
Geico Commercial #13
Lastly, a caveman and his girlfriend are at the beach and using a metal detector to look for some left-behind goodies. Guess what they find?
If you think I left any good commercials out, let me know!
